Freedomis like the breathe we take in, it has a sense of simplicity calmnessserenity and when it is taken away, we choke whiz and gasp for it,our throat muscles clutch together and the suffocation sets in. Thatis simply how it feels when our freedom is taken away. At some pointwhen something is done over and over again it become so sought of aritual that can`t be defied nor questioned. It takes that leap ofcourage that burning desire the feeling of invincibility to questionwhat we find as a norm. This is simply what it took for the manyancestors of the Great Migration to shape the course of destiny andwrite the course of history in their own words for generations andgenerations to come. Their voice to be heard their sentimentsadhered to, their pain felt their longing for a better world theirbonds of solitude broken (Wilkerson, 2011).

Wheredoes change as a form of freedom really come from? Why the need forfreedom? What is its importance? What are some aspects of freedomacquisition? These are questions that linger in many people’s mind.As noted by Wilkerson (2011), change as an aspect arises simply froman idea and the need to something different. It may not be an easycourses of step but it a step to a different direction. Equality issimply not a notion shared by all despite the notion of the crowd andthat makes us all different and opinionated in that sense of view.Freedom is part of equality a concept of it really. The opposite ofleading a life of equality is a life solitude bound by chains ofarrogance and sadism. We are competitive creature true but there is asense of pride when you win on a fair ground on an equal footing theopposite is just unfair and brings no sense of satisfaction.

Whenand how did the notion of freedom came-by during the great migration?How has this notion changed the current world? To start with, theideal of freedom are what the Great Migration was all about. It was aconcept that becomes an idea which gave birth to the free individualsof today. It gave birth to a nation a generation of free thinkersand free does and that was the nation built on an equal footing offreedom for all.
